    Musical Mondays Week 73 (Maximilliano’s Pick)

    I have my pick... Saw this movie last year in theaters and felt lukewarm about it... But I think that discussing it with you gals and guys is going to help me make mi mind if I love it or hate it

    Musical Mondays Week 73 (Maximilliano’s Pick)

    On my way home from work... I'll give you my pick soon
  5. Love this Ep 100% I have some OMISSIONS for the mini Ep. 1. Nobody mentioned how Jason could totally be cast as Hobbs Brother (or one of the many siblings at least) because Cliff Curtis was sporting a beard ala Jason the only thing missing for a 100% doppelganger status was the braids... It was all I could think about when I saw the movie in theaters remember Jason has one foot in the door because he played the TickTock Man in Jonh Wick 3 Parabellum and it shares the same direction with Hobbs and Shaw. 2. Nobody remembered that John June, Jason And Adam with help from the audience successfully predicted a Shaw mother role played by Hellen Mirren and a Shaw sister like 4 years back in the live episode for Furious 7... That or Chris Morgan is a huge HDTGM fan 3. Maybe the huge ball/testicles gag is an anti-steroids message delivered as ball busting (pun intended) banter between Hobbs and Shaw (it's common knowledge that juicers get big testicles and small penises) (Saved the best for last) 4. In keeping with what Jason said about Hobbs and Shaw that it takes from other movies without a second thought, he mentioned the transformers robotic morph sounds and I think the MovieBitches review of Hobbs and Shaw pointed out the Rock doing his best helicopter wrangling/muscle flex ala Captain America in Civil War One thing that I noticed was the ending scene lifted beat to beat from the original Blade Runner (spoilers for that movie) But... In Hobbs and Shaw is a reversal were the humans with "heart" save and spare the machine just as Idris is against the ropes with rain and a blueish tone to boot... My brain literally melted in the theater I was dead I hope some of these make it to the mini Ep next week...
  6. When I googled an image for the poster the Goofy one was one of the results... I said no more lollygagging but I didn't say anything about Goofing around
  7. Now no more lollygagging... My pick this week is the GOOD version of La La Land straight from Poland so we might as well call it "PoLaLa Land" or "PolaLand"
  8. I'm here and I have my pick but first I will use this post to tell you about 2 other movies that I didn't pick (maybe next time I choose they'll be the ones ) The Katy Perry concert Documentary And a Zac Efron movie... Not High School Musical "We Are Your Friends"
  9. You are right... Jammer then me that was the order
  10. So Monday April 22 we'll discuss my pick? Or the 1st week of May? (aka. Justin Timberlake favourite month) Because next round is next week plus a day from today... Just asking cuz I don't want to cut into anyones turn


    *LONG scattered thoughs POST* I was away and didn't saw this "thread" when it was originally posted But I did saw the movie opening day and again the next day... It's a really good movie made with lots of care for detail, unfortunately 1 thing did bother me... If we consider that original Lupita is actually living underground all these years cuz tethered Lupita chocked her and switched places with her then the scenes where she tells what happened to her husband and Red (along with tethred family) introduces herself and monologues/expositions her backstory don't hold up because they are talking as if there was no switch explaining some situations that didn't happen to them but to their doppelgangers. I know it's nitpicking but I'm more concerned with the scene in the bedroom where Lupita 2 posing as real tells her husband what happened the day at the beach and we see the abridged version of the intro stopping short before she choked Lupita 1 and at that point I do care but if/when I know she is NOT who she says she is then my sympathy is slim to none... She did tell her story looking out the window and facing away from her husband, giving him the back, maybe that was early tell (probably 'cuz she was actually lying/withholding the most important part of the story) I appreciated the twist in the horror movie level, that it's not really over, the family is alive with at least 1 tethered in toe... Other than that some minor things but overall and for what it is I give Us 2 thumbs up I now want to start to roll the ball here on something I saw in Reddit, both Red and Adelaide children are actually human/tethered hybrids So that has to be taken into consideration. Continuing a thing that was posted above about who controls who in "Us"... My opinion about this is that the younger the subject is the strongest the connection for the human to control the tethered is (see young Adelaide now Red dancing below and the tethered above doing the same and Jason controlling Pluto... I am aware of the theory that Jason and Pluto also switched but then it means that when the experiment failed all the soulless tethders just follow along but in the successful Adelaide event the control goes both ways I guess. Gotta see it a 3rd time) I also think Red and Adelaide share an actual special bond that increases the ability for one to control the other, It has been said in various reviews and analysis of "Us" that it deals with the theme of socioeconomic disparity in America and that is both obvious and subtle throughout the movie in many ways but 2 of the many things are 1. That the escalator leading to the tethered underground tunnel lab facility is goin down and 2. In the montage where we see Adelaide above the amusement park and her doppelganger below with the tethred people mimicking the action is like 2 socioeconomic classes (the have and the have nots) they are doing the same thing but the ones above enjoy themselves and it's not so the case for the ones below (like in Red chimney fire monologue she talks about food, toys and her overall lifestyle and experiences that are determined by her status) when Lupita 2 kills Lupita 1 (Red) is out of fear of losing the life she made after climbing the "social escalator" and putting someone else in hard times way. In the '80 the hands across America movement's go was to help the less fortunate but it's 2019 and the problem has actually evolved and in "Us" the Americans that are ignored and abused to some degree (by the system or directly by other Americans) now demand retribution. Another details was the constant appearance of the number 11 from the 11-11 Bible verse... (channel 11 news at 11, the Michael Jackson shirt was prize number 11, 11:11 the tied score from the sports game, 11:11pm the digital clock's time, 1111 ambulance number at the end) Among other things was the specific shirt design from the Thriller music video I personally don't think it's a coincidence that Jordan Peele used it I think because the movie deals with "evil doppelgangers" and at the end of that music video Michael Jackson is revealed to be a cat eyed monster it fits with the theme of the movie perfectly That's a I remember and I wish to keep the conversation going

    Musical Mondays Week 59 Passing Strange

    Don't miss The Fountain, Black Swan and Ruby Sparks

    Musical Mondays Week 59 Passing Strange

    Great Musical, I really enjoyed it a lot. The Cast and The Band were on point... The Opening song (Prologue "We Might Play all Night") was one of my favourites and I hope it was longer. About what was said before... I feel I can't really say if Spike Lee significantly help on improving the overall quality of the show but I did enjoyed learning ( when I whatched the credits ) that the D.P. or cinematographer was Matthew Libatique who I love since Requiem For A Dream up to the recent A Star Is Born. IMHO I want to give credit to Matty for doing his thing, because I feel his work showed and he helped capture a lot of key moments in the best way possible. Also both Stew (The Narrator) and Youth wear the same red Converse Chuck Taylor's All-Star Shoes If anyone here is interested... Someone uploaded the entire Tony Awards from 2008 to YouTube. That Year Passing Strange was nominated... Their performance starts at the 22min:38sec mark https://youtu.be/d5YUhlHRF7o
  14. "Like an orgasm in reverse" perhaps????
  15. Hello for now I'm back and I'm gonna watch this Spike Lee musical and share my thought with you guys. END OF LINE

    Celebrate #HDTGM200 !!!

    *What was your first episode of HDTGM? Episode number 1 Burlesque I'm a fan of Paul since 2007 - 2008 whe he was on MTV's Human Giant and I own the Season 1 DVD #humblebrag and when some link popped in my Facebook feed (maybe from Paul's Facebook Fan Page) I clicked on it and here we are all these years later (7 years later if the math and my brain don't fail me...) Extra fact: HDTGM was my first podcast experience ever, then came C.B.B., I was there too, UTU2TM, Bitch Sesh, Raised By T.V., Unspooled, Threedom, etc. *Favorite catchphrase? "Literally", "DumDum" "...So Upsetting" *A clip or moment that you'll always remember? ( timestamps are nice ;)) June's Candle blowing theory in the After Earth episode... I love how first Jason already knows June is about to say something epic and for the books Paul (Scheer) was about to explain it but Jason stops him an he catches on so the two of them let June explain away not before Paul (F. Tompkins) says with a tone of disbelief in his voice "Did you really not catch" to which Paul S. And Jason jump and shush him so he doesn't blow it... Now it's 3 vs. 1 and June blows everyone away with her interpretation so much so that a contagious laughter explosion begins... That was so epic I had to do a play by play... I Love that moment! *The episode you revisit the most Various... Sucker Punch, All the "Fasts", Mortal Kombat, Speed 2 Cruise Control, Hackers, SleepAway Camp, Deep Blue Sea, Birdemic, 88 Minutes, The Room, From Justin To Kelly, Jack Frost, Earnest Goes to Jail, Glitter, LOL, Hard Ticket To Hawaii, The Smurfs and of course, After Earth *The movie that you loved or hated watching Hated: Jason X, Bratz, Vampire Academy, The Covenant, The Lake House, Ninja Terminator (The episode was pretty good though), Zardoz, Tyler Perry's Temptation and Gigli. Loved: Miami Connection, Chopping Mall, Deep Blue Sea, The Room, Birdemic, Maximum Overdrive, Con Air and SleepAway Camp. *How HDTGM fits into your weekly routine I listen to it whenever I have free time, its never the same time every week... And if and when I miss one or more I binge them whenever I have the time. *What the show has meant to you after all these years or any other sappy stuff Helps me keep my sanity by supporting my love of movies and the urge I have to discuss and dissect them online All joking a salad... This show has given me so much joy all these years that picking something right now just because doesn't feel right to me... Not because I can't, but because I feel I could never repay it somehow, other than of course be a die hard fan 4 life and keep writing long posts in the forum along with the marvelous forum friends which whom I respect appreciate and care deeply I send to them a sincere "You know who you are... Musical Monday Peeps!!!" Thank you very Very VERY much June, Jason and Paul and every one behind the scenes in HDTGM and Earwolf and here's to at least 200 more episodes!!! -Maximiliano Ruocco Rodriguez

    Episode 199.5 - Minisode 199.5

    Back in the '90s when I was a kid and all the family gathered to eat my Italian grandfather said every time the food was served "Lights. Camera. Action! Action Jackson!" I was a kid and just thought it was a funny rhyme to let us all know we could dig into the food... Haven't seen the movie but hearing Paul's Action Jackson's announcement for the 200th episode brought me back fun memories... Can't wait! P.S.: Last but not least... Get well soon Paul

    Musical Mondays Week 47 Stage Fright

    Let me start this post by saying that I'm sorry... I genuinely thought that "the more, the merrier" theory would apply to the discussion of this movie and I was clearly wrong... I noticed that the movie had 3 different editors (one for every movie genre maybe? Horror/Musical/Comedy) this once again debunks the "the more, the merrier" theory and apart from the uneven general tone of the movie IMHO the various editors made the exposition of information and backstory clunky and some important facts are burried by all the unimportant dialogue and "out of the blue" actions of most of the characters. The flashback at the beginning is set up like a nightmare the main girl is having when she wakes up the day the kids come to camp... But then they put the "10 years later" text and that happens various times throughout the running time of the movie Also they didn't use the camp/forest setting to it's full potential This was the 2nd time I saw this movie, I also noticed near the end that, when the main girl goes to the dressing room to find the guy and the costumer dead the play goes into full bad improv disaster mode I felt the movie also went into that mode... I have some more things to say but I want to ponder a little bit more...
  19. It's the one from 2014... I think there is one from 1950, one from 1997 and another from 2017, Don't watch those
  20. I saw this in 2015-16 I think, and had mixed feelings about it, but now we're in this together... Sooo Let's get our camp gear and Japanese make up ready for...
  21. As soon as I finish my dinner I'll reveal my pick...
